How to Best Use Picture Windows in Your Home

Picture windows are far less complicated than other window styles, being a piece of glass set into a frame. No sashes, no hardware and no moving parts. Yet, picture windows can dramatically transform even the most ordinary-looking room.

Combine It With Other Window Styles

Mulling is a type of window assembly that combines two or more smaller windows. You can combine virtually any window style when mulling windows. You might already be familiar with bay and bow windows, which are basically combinations of three or more windows built as a projecting window.

Mulled windows typically feature a combination of operable windows like double hung or casement for ventilation and fixed windows like picture windows for capturing a view. Picture windows can be mulled as a complementary window, which increases the window area, or as the main window, complemented by smaller operable windows. In some cases, they can also be mulled with sliding French doors.

Increased Natural Light

Natural lighting offers many benefits. They help reduce energy consumption and boost curb appeal. Utilizing natural lighting also has health benefits as it helps encourage healthy amounts of sleep by regulating sleep cycles. With Renewal by Andersen®picture windows, you can get the most natural lighting for any room. Our Fibrex® material frames have exceptional structural strength that lets us build slimmer frames, yet hold large single pieces of glass.

Clerestory Windows

Clerestory windows are typically seen on vaulted windows. These fixed windows provide illumination and improve upon large spaces aesthetically. You can choose to have multiple picture windows of different sizes mulled together to create an interesting look or combine them with specialty windows, which we also offer. Specialty windows like picture windows do not have sashes and can be crafted into virtually any shape. Whether you prefer graceful curved windows or modern, angular ones, we can build them to fit with picture windows.
